Venica is acclaimed for its at once traditional and innovative interpretation of winemaking in the Collio region, in northeastern Italy. This Jesera Pinot Grigio made with organic grapes will surprise you for the amber color and the nutty note at the nose, giving away that this is a more structured wine than the usual Pinot Grigio. Still at the nose, citrus zest, limestone, sage and wet hey complete the aroma spectrum. At the palate it is intense, sapid and persistent, alternating golden apples, floral notes and minerality. It is long with a light note of tannins at the end.
